    Default Party Bags... do you do up extra?

    You think I'd be an old hand at party bags by now since my eldest is approaching 11 but I still stress every time!

    DS2 is having his party next Sunday and I'm sorting out party bags today. Do you make up extra just in case someone who hasn't RSVP'd turns up or there is a smaller sibling there who doesn't want to miss out?

    I'm a big softie....

    Also do you make up party bags for your other kids?

    My dd 1st birthday was last weekend I did enough bags for all adults and kids plus a few extra. In future I probably won't do bags for adults.

    I always do extra just in case. I figure its not the childs fault for the adult being unable to show simple manners as rsvping

    My kids also get one. For younger siblings that i know are coming i do smaller bags age appropriate.

    I do party bags for everyone ( I think my friends only come to our parties get their party bags!) I do super cool ones for invited kids ( usually personalised with some lollies and toys in the theme) and then have just lolly bags for extras/adults

    DS only has a few friends come to his bday each year, his 6 closest friends. I only do bags for them and no one else as that is the total guest list. We say how many kids we can fit in our 2 cars is all he can have

    I would do a few extra - and if you know a younger sibling is coming make up an age appropriate one for them too. But then I love that stuff!

    I do extras but maybe not as elaborate as the ones for the invited party guests if that makes sense.
    I hate kids to miss out and its also not the younger siblings fault they are getting brought along

    Thanks everyone.

    DS2 is 9 but I will have maybe 4 teenagers there, 3 girls and a boy. Any suggestions on what I can put in their bags?
